General Mach Discussion / Re: Help with conversion
« on: February 18, 2007, 06:47:17 AM »
Thanks for the info from cncretro.

 Now that I'm an EE (Hey I got 2 hours of reading under my belt), /....I think the better plan is to go to an electric motor repair shop to see if he has 10000uf 100volt capacitors...1 to each 60 volt motor...maybe a bit overkill but I wish to not stain my shorts.   ;D

Since the original equipment had the capacitor downstream from the transformer and upstream a kazillion electronics from the motors...would placement at the motor leads be a logical place?

Thanks again

FranH

 Has anyone had experience with lowcostcncretrofits?

The correspondence I've had with them seems fruitful in that their controller is a 'plug and play'....or so I've been told. Output from XP and Quantum via printer port to their printer port as an import. The controller receives from the encoders and then feeds the motors for movement.

I have a couple bumps in the road....this is what I have

The motors need be DC and with brushes...ok
The encoders need be 5 volt...ok
The X, Y axis has encoders on the motors and also on the table....Should I try to incorporate both to the controller? Would it be more repeatable or increase accuracy?

Output from the transformer is 0 volts, 26 volts, 52 volts.....the motors are 60 volt.

A special capacitor who has 100 volt and 10000uf is connected to the xyz pc boards of the old system either direct or via a Motorola 8649W microprocessor. It has been suggested that I put capacitors to 'smooth' out the motors. Where do I put them? At what value? Do they need cooling?

Anyone with electronic experience to bail me out is appreciated....anyone who has had a positive experience with lowcostcncretrofits is also appreciated. Thanks in advance!!

I'm a newbe......I loaded Quantum on a computer to learn on. It is connected to only a printer. From my cad/cam I made 2 diameters at xyz zero. The area in between to be milled out with a .25 dia cutter to a -.400. The posted program is saved on a floppy at another computer and loaded on this one. To edit comes up within notebook as shown below.
